in reply to RFC: How Tightly Coupled To Perl Must We Be?

I'm not sure what your question is aiming at.

To my knowledge, mod_auth_openid is not a Perl module. The naming convention suggests that it is an Apache module.

The linked github repository also has no indication that mod_auth_openid is written in Perl, or closely related to Perl.

So, therefore my question:

Where does Perl come into the picture?

If the code in question is a Perl module, that explains where Perl comes into the picture. If it is not Perl code, the poster needs to explain where Perl connects to his problem.

    Ah. My ignorance of Apache is thusly revealed. :-)

      Note also that after asking the pertinent question "Wherefore Perl...?" in Re: mod_auth_openid error!!!, Corion went on to offer some sound general advice, generalities being all that were possible in the circumstances, and to suggest a better way to use this site.

      All in all, a pertinent, helpful, considered and considerate reply, all that I could hope for from this site (and much more than I have occasionally observed) and just what I have come to expect from Corion. And that is the tight coupling that is most important to me about PerlMonks. (After reviewing Re: mod_auth_openid error!!!, I upvoted it after having originally passed it over.)
